We'll learn how technology platforms are hijacking our minds and society, with Max Stossel of Time Well Spent (http://www.timewellspent.io/).

Time Well Spent works on "reversing the digital attention crisis and realigning technology with humanity's best interests." Max will speak with the PTA about adult and student social media/internet/cell phone usage. 

To get ready for the meeting, Time Well Spent recommends PTA members download the Iphone app Moment (and take a screenshot showing daily use) or the Android app Quality Time.
